I was recently told I had vitamin B12 deficiency. My doctor ran bloods again to double check and also requested tests for Pernicious anemia and celiac disease, both were negative. I asked what my b12 level was and he said zero. He said it was so negligible it didn't register a number.
He said that because the tests for PA and celiac came back negative that it was due to dietary reasons. I am not vegan or vegetarian and eat a varied diet so I'm sceptical that it's because of diet. He's given me 150mcg of cynocolbalmin tablets to take daily for the next 6 months and then have bloods redone to check levels.
I just wondered if anyone had any opinions on whether that sounds like the best course of action? From what I've read, with very low levels, people generally get injections to get their levels back up.
Advice appreciated 🙂
